ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of our beloved daughter!
 Solveig - Angelique Nikischer Keshavjee.
Her love, kindness and presence with everyone who met her, was one of a kind!
Always remembered and forever in our hearts! Gone to soon!


I have no words and my heart is shattered in pieces! God called our beautiful daughter home! Being free of her pain I'm trying to understand, why she is gone? God must have had a special plan for you, when your shining light came to an end! Radiating a light all of your own living  on in many hearts, while you're gone! Praying this nightmare of your loss, will become a memory of all you passed!

You were an inspiration and will be deeply missed. You were loved more than you ever know!
Precious daughter of  Karin and her late husband Josef Nikischer! Cherished sister of Lars-Oliver Nikischer, his wife Chantal and daughter Leeah-Joelle! Survived and missed by her husband Azim Keshavjee and beloved daughters Taliya and Namira! Also survived by aunts, uncles and several cousins from Austria, Germany, Canada, USA, Cayman Islands,plus many friends around the world! Fondly remembered by many dear friends and family here and abroad! Heidi & Mike Bremer,
Trautchen Joly, K.I.Kuhnel, Hazel & Gary Johnston, Sonja Paetzold - Coia.G.Kapaun.  Writer/Composer Guylaine Daigneault composing some of  Solveig-Angelique's Songs in French!


 Solveig-Angelique's life was music and she loved singing! It was natural while she was growing up with her brother Lars-Oliver following her path! After graduating from High-school, the Quebec Conservatory of Music in Montreal, she was given the opportunity of studying at the internationally renowned School, Vincent D'Indy! Solveig-Angelique completed her licentiate performance program at McGill University and moved with her family to Ottawa ON. She graduated as a Coloratura Soprano with an " Honour Bachelor of Music "degree from the University of Ottawa in 1988! After that she had the opportunity to follow and continue her studies in Europe! Not only was she pursuing her own music courier, but she joined her husbands Azim Keshavjee's cover band; Comfortably Numb!
       In addition of raising two lovely daughters, Solveig-Angelique had another professional life, for many years she was  "Algonquin College's Manager of  procurement" ! Our hearts are heavy, but filled with immense gratitude to have had her in our lives. She was modest, kind and unselfish. She valued integrity and fairness whether in competition, a conference at work, or having a discussion in a recording studio! Solveig-Angelique will be remembered for her signature sense of kindness that was woven into so many aspects of her life, and for her admirable blend of grace and love!

A life beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered !
She was an irreplaceable woman and has left her footprint on many!
A new Star lights the Night Sky. Godspeed Solveig-Angelique!
 
I am standing upon the seashore. A ship  at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and  and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.

Then someone at my side says: "There, she is gone! "Gone where?"
Gone from my sight.  That is all.  She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side and she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port.

Her diminished size is in me, not her. And just  at the moment when someone at  my side says: "There, she is gone!" There are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout: "Here  she  comes!"... And that is dying.....

Many grieving people have ask me how I deal with this horrible loss!

A few things  you should know! About Life After Loss!

Everyone will have their own experience in any way of losing a loved one losing a child, no matter how young or old, it is the most painful experience  unimaginable, which would be the same for any child losing their beloved Mom. I do hope this will help my two Granddaughters Taliya and Namira in this most  difficult Time!


#1 -Don't expect yourself to look or feel the way society tells you. It's a personal journey, and your path is the only one you should be on. You may or may not cry, you may or may not feel numb, and you may or may not be angry.
#2 - Don't give a crap about what anyone thinks of your process. Unless they have walked your path, it can't be understood, so forgive their ignorance and do what is right for your soul. The less you care, the happier you will be. Grief changes you, let it.

#3 - MOVE YOUR BODY. Yes, it's critical. You need to move. It's empowering, healthy movement floods your brain with much-needed chemicals, and it will bring you more strength than you can comprehend.

#4 - Take self-care and soul care time. You will need to process your loss. Journal, meditate, go to therapy, workout, ride horses, paint, draw, go to church....whatever your thing is for soul care, do it.

#5 - Don't expect it to go away. I see so many grievers who are angry that they still "feel" years after their loss. Society tells you that you just have to give it time. Instead of putting a timeline on your grief, understand you will absorb it into all that you are and that will create a new you. It never goes away, and that's okay.

#6 - Don't numb your pain. Skip the alcohol and the drugs. They mask what you really will need to process. Live it, experience it, survive it, and you will be okay.


#7 - Understand you will feel like you are doing great one day and the next day you might feel like you are doing horrible. This is part of the process.

#8 - Focus on gratitude. So damn hard after a loss but seriously so important...in fact, critical.

#9 - Get outside. The sun and fresh air are amazing tools in your toolbox towards hope.

#10 - Find a POSTIVE community. Don't surround yourself with bitter people. Find people who understand that bad days and moments happen but overall, looking for the best in life is one of the only things leading you towards future happiness and peace.

 #11- Don't be a Victim. Yes, your loss is horrible and brutal but don't let yourself fall prey to being a victim. Nothing good comes from a victim mentality. Sadly, it is what it is, how can you learn, grow and become better as you grieve.

There are a million more, this is just a sample! I hope it speaks to your soul..

Love and the Soul never die, they are held in God’s Hands forever, and though at times we feel so heartbroken that we don’t know how we will carry on and we are almost lost in our tears, God sends us beautiful memories of our child’s birth and love and life, with His promise that we will see them again.
With the gift of song given to Solveig, she must be sharing in God’s choir, helping His Angels to honour Him, what a blessing! And Karin, you played a part in nurturing His gift to your child...you will hear her again. Happy Birthday to you and your girl...

Sweet Solveig-Angelique.
I thought of you today,but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
I think about you in silence,I often speak your name.
All I have are memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake from which I'll never part.
God has you in his arms I have you in my heart.
I see you smiling down and love you with all my heart!
Mom

I was just thinking of you today, Karin, and I remembered that it is almost one year since your lovely Solveig passed. I know there are really no words that can fix the hurt you have, but I do pray every day that God will bless you with His peace and love and healing. I believe there is an afterlife for us who have faith in Him, and I believe we will get to see our loved ones again, this is what I also ask for you. Much love comes your way, Barb.

We Know Solveig from the time we all danced together with HUmmel Hummel dance group in Montreal.
We have very fond memories of those days, and of the beautiful girl Solveig with the Angelic voice. We knew then how talented she was.
I have been following her band, Comfortably Numb, hoping that one day they would be playing in Montreal so that we could meet once again.
Needless to say how shocked we were when we heard the news of her passing.
Our deepest sympathies go out to her children, husband and her mother Karin.
God bless, Peace and Love.

April 6 "Happy Birthday" Solveig- Angelique
Today is your special day and I remember how much you liked celebrating your Birthday surrounded with the people you loved! I think the good Lord just felt your work on this earth was done! So he called you home to celebrate your special day in heaven, reunited with passed family and many friends! I am thinking of one little angel baby girl who was laid to rest on your special day some 19 years ago, at only four days old leaving her twin sister Namira with you ,but being happy of having her Mom finally all to herself !The candles are lit for both of you, the families you left behind especially your daughters Taliya and Namira! Even though this is a very sad day for everyone we will be celebrating with you in our hearts and minds, thinking of all the good times we shared together! Happy Birthday sweet Angel daughter, may Angels light your heavenly way with peace and joy! Gone from our sight, but not from our hearts!
We love and miss you and wish we could turn back time!
Much Love from Mom and your Bro Lars-Oliver...

I was on holiday when I heard the sad news about Solveig’s passing. I was shocked and could not believe that this had happened. I have known Solveig since she was a young girl always with a smile on her face, modest and considerate towards other people. She showed a keen interest in music and dance and I still remember, when she was singing at Expo 67 the popular tune “Edelweiss” with the Two Mountain Chorus as back up! She had a voice like an angel! The greatest pain is not having had a chance to say good bye! Someday perhaps we will understand why God has called her away so soon!
Karin, it will be the little things remembered, the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter, the tears. This seems hard right now but it will be memories of all these things that help push away the pain and bring smiles again! May the loving memories of Solveig bring comfort and heal your heart! Solveig’s memory will live in our hearts forever!
My deep condolences to you my friend and Lars - Oliver
Posted by BARBARA YOUNG on February 27, 2019
Karin, my prayer is that one day you and your lovely Solveig will be reunited and together with all your loved ones, for I believe death is not the end. Love does not go away with the earthly passing, but continues on.
Psalm 23: V6: Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Because God does not lie, His promise for eternal life is real, we must believe that all will come about. Have courage. Much love is yours, Barb.
Posted by Patty Moates on February 20, 2019
"What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget"

Karin, my dear dear Friend my heart is heavy with sadness ..The loss of your precious daughter has taken it's toll on you, a pain and emptiness that no one can know but you, Solveig's mother..
Her brilliance and her voice will be preserved forever for the world to hear and enjoy. She will have an eternal place in all our hearts.
Godspeed ❤️
Posted by Patty Moates on February 17, 2019
My dear Friend my heart shattered into a million pieces as I heard the news the same time as you..I could not believe what I was hearing nor could I believe the way you received the news of her passing.I was numb as you were..
Your beautiful daughter was a brilliant artist and had the voice of an angel...
Yes, she's gone too soon but God needed her with him ...Now everytime I look up I'll hear her sweet voice and smile..
Karin, my Friend I'm so sorry for what has happened and the pain you feel I wish I could take it all away..You're a strong woman and in your time you'll find peace..I hope it's soon..
I love you dear Friend ❤️

Sending condolences to the family, loved ones and friends of Solveig. Heaven has embraced another angel . 
I pray that you find the strength within to carry on living life to its fullest each and every day as Solveig would wish for you
Always loved, forever remembered. Solveig's memory will live on in your hearts for eternity
Posted by Karin Nikischer on February 12, 2019
I have no words and my heart is shattered in pieces! God called my beautiful daughter home! Being free of her pain, is the only thing I'm trying to understand? God must have had a very special plan when your shining light on this earth came to an end! The day we had to part left a big gaping hole in my heart. And the plans we once had will no longer be ! Your memory is my keepsake, with which I never part.
God has you in his keeping, but I have you in my heart. I close my eyes and I see you smile and think of you with all my love, keeping you in my heart forever,I just wish that I could go back and relive the past. I didn't realize just how it would happen so fast and I hope with all my heart this nightmare of lonely days will come to pass!
Godspeed sweet angel girl...

I was just thinking of you today, Karin, and I remembered that it is almost one year since your lovely Solveig passed. I know there are really no words that can fix the hurt you have, but I do pray every day that God will bless you with His peace and love and healing. I believe there is an afterlife for us who have faith in Him, and I believe we will get to see our loved ones again, this is what I also ask for you. Much love comes your way, Barb.

"Happy Birthday" Solveig-Angelique

“Happy Birthday” sweet Angel! I hope you have a big party up in heaven, because nobody down here is celebrating, our world is sick! Still figuring out why the good lord called you back in the best time of your life! You sure would have enjoyed being on a trip with me when I went to Germany visiting with people and places, you performed at! I was amazed how many people remembered you, asking when you were coming back! But that was a long time ago when you started your own family. I so wish that you could have had many more years with your own family, but it wasn’t meant to be! I do appreciate when I can connect with you seeing your beautiful smile. We may not be together in life, but we are together in spirit and soul. So today I uploaded your favourite song for your birthday, enjoy! You are forever in my heart and you are surely missed and loved! The Love , only a mom can understand...

Sweet Angel.

This is a chapter in your life I still can't believe is real! A day no parent hopes to be around for the day when God called you home! This year has gone by and I remember many conversation we had many years ago about your life,hopes and dreams and the things you hoped to do! I remember when we picked the material for your graduation dress and you couldn't wait for that big day to come! You looked so beautiful at your recital and told me, if you ever had a daughter, it would be a keepsake for her! Not to long ago I was looking at all your music books from university.I came across your diva book with all the difficult arias you had to learn and still shake my head, of how you mastered getting up at five am, to vocalize!You looked at me  and your smile was your answer! I see your smile and know you are with us in spirit, and thank you from my heart for the messages I receive! It is a very sad day and I have been listening to some of  your classical music and looked at some of your videos! It sure helped me to find old, original cassette tapes which friends ask me for to upload. We all love you sweet angel, you are forever in our hearts and you are surely missed!

Solveig - Angelique

 A distinguished multilingual vocalist, Solveig-Angelique was equally at home in the recording studio as on stage. For most of her life, she had been associated with professional performers and high quality teachers in her single - minded pursuit of a career in voice. Born in Montreal and raised in a German speaking home, her Mom became aware of her musical talent when as a toddler she sang along with most television commercials. Music was running in the family, Solveig's Grandfather was a professional Entertainer in Germany and her Mom was operating a Music and Folk-dance Troupe in Montreal! She started at the " Evans Sisters School " of Music and Dance at the tender age of three, and performed a year later at Expo 1967. At age five she released her debut single in New York City. The following years found her studying with the Children's Theatre of Montreal. At age twelve she was the youngest performer to ever win a lead role in the Musical Patience, with the St. Laurent Operatic Society in Montreal. After graduating from the Quebec Conservatory of Music, she was given the opportunity of studying at the internationally renowned  School " Vincent D'Indy".Solveig-Angelique completed her licentiate performance program at McGill University and moved with her family to Ottawa. She graduated as a Coloratura Soprano Opera Singer with an" Honour Bachelor of Music" degree from the University of Ottawa.She was a Kiwanis Music Festival winner for three years, as well as winning the Senior’s Scholarship, and the prestigious "Ottawa Choral Society Trophy". With her degree in vocal and classical music in hand, Solveig-Angelique headed of to Europe and Opera. She auditioned in the different musical disciplines in Austria and Germany, and found herself inundated with avenues she could explore, but was unsure which way to go. There "I was in the big, bad world of opera and I thought, God I don't know if I want to do this anymore". I got really scared and got the cold feet syndrome. She headed back home to Canada to regroup deciding what she wanted to do. "The time I was of from my singing,was the worst time in my life". The only way I could come back to music and the person I was I had to remember not letting my stage fright win and start singing again! Hoping to be given a second chance after saying that’s it, I don't  want it anymore! I'm just so grateful I was given an opportunity through my producer, manager Karin Anne, and the Song "I’m Lonely " to grab that brass ring and not let it go!Karin had teamed up with Intermedia Music Germany and produced Solveig's album,  "Touch my Mind" and her single CD "Adler Im Wind " debuting number one in the new German Music Charts. Even though the album got amazing airplay in North America, for Europe,she was required to stay in Germany. She had auditioned over a period of two months for the lead role in the Musical Cats in Hamburg, when the long awaited acceptance call came, Solveig-Angelique decided she wanted to stay in Canada! After years of travel she missed her home, and since her album was doing well, she felt she wanted to pursue her singing courier in Canada! That was one reason, the more important one was, she had given her heart to a young man she had known for some time,he had a band of his own she wanted to join! As her producer and manager I told her not to forget the many years of school and hard work she had put into her dream, and the Goals "Solveig - Angelique" had set for herself, finally getting the break she had worked so hard for so many years! With her decision, all work in progress came to a halt,she had exactly done what people had ask her over many years, "What if "! Once I had digested her news, I had to step away from being her producer - manager, as her Mom I looked into my daughters eyes, she had found a different joy and happiness in her life!! After all I had told her all along that she could have a husband, children and living her dream. As her producer I knew,that a most beautiful voice would be last for the world and all the people who had supported her Dream for most of her life!Even though I was still in disbelief, I had to step away from being her Producer-Manager! I had to remember it was her Life, her Choice and her Happiness!

Solveig-Angelique became a member in her husband, Azim Keshavjee's cover band.Comfortably Numb!

Solveig-Angelique's dream ended Jan 21.2019 when God called her home!

She will now be performing Pink Floyds powerful tune "The Great Gig In The Sky"  from
high up above! 

A new Star lights the Night Sky... 

Godspeed Solveig-Angelique! Forever in our Hearts. Gone to soon!!!

" Happy Birthday " Solveig-Angelique

Shared by Karin Nikischer on April 6, 2019

Today is your special day and I remember how much you liked celebrating your Birthday surrounded with the people you loved! I think the good Lord just felt your work on this earth was done! So he called you home to celebrate your special day in heaven, reunited with passed family and many friends! I am thinking of one little angel baby girl who was laid to rest on your special day some 19 years ago today, at only four days old, being happy of having her Mom finally all to herself !The candles are lit for both of you and the families you left behind! We will be celebrating with you in our hearts and minds, thinking of all the good times we shared together! Happy Birthday sweet Angel, may Angels light your heavenly way with peace and joy, gone from our sight, but not from our hearts! 

                                  Through your eyes I see all new things
                               It is your presence immense joy which brings
                              Through your hands a new future I will shape
                              From all grief and pain it will help me escape
                          Through your heart I will live even after I pass away
                     How much I love you dear in a few words, I can’t say. Mom ox

There Is No Map To The Journey Of Life.                     

There is no book to the journey of life, and the road you are destined be mother or wife, will seem at times to have bedrock of fear but never forget sweat pea, I am always near.

Watch for the souls who like trees root in soil, for fear that their heart is the thing they will spoil. Don't let them lead you to alleys of dark, where you'll be forced to protect your light and your heart.

Some live as victors and challenge the past, some never get there and live as a cast. I know of life that the road is not clear, but you have your dad Claire, I am always here.

There is no map to the journey of life, so live to be whole, not just girlfriend or wife. Souls like ours need pasture and plane, and your soul, my love, will be restless, again and again.

As you journey ahead your spirit will speak, it is for home you are heading, it is home that you seek. Where that is only you can find, let your heart lead the way and just follow behind.

While I am out here ahead in some way, I hope the signs I write, you'll find on your way. Read them and do what you will, at the end of the day it's your heart to fulfill.

If there was a book to the journey of life, yours would be bound with the pain of my strife. It would heal and protect and ease your pain, and help you find your feet again.

The words would be written with the depth of my love and never forget I am with you, be it on earth or above.

Algonquin College "President's Star Award"

Shared by Karin Nikischer on March 12, 2019
Purchasing Department: Solveig Keshavjee, Carrie Snow, Audrey Michaud,
Amanda Racine.


Finance & Administration

No matter what the situation – even during the busiest time at year end – I can always count on the ladies in Purchasing to do all they can to help. They are always, courteous, friendly, and extremely helpful. You can tell that there is a smile on their faces when you talk to them on the phone.
When I first started working at Algonquin, and was learning about the required procedures, the ladies we’re always there to help. All I had to do was ask, and they took time out of their busy schedules to help me out, or talk me through it. Even to this day, if I am unsure of something, they put their own work on hold to help out. They are committed to excellence.


How they help in a panic: the expediting of requisitions and issuing of PO’s within hours, in order to allow emergency work/repairs to begin immediately by a company that will not proceed without a PO or during summer construction to ensure all is complete by the deadline for the new school year.

Their help is consistent and they are committed to the College’s values. If I leave a message, they always call me back right away. If I send an email, they always email me back in a timely manner – even if they are away from the College.

I hope you will choose them to receive the Star. They truly do deserve it.
Thank you.
